4.08/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 5

Poured from 750mL to pint glass

A: Pours a copper body with a large off-white head. Head has low retention for the style.

S: Smells spicy, fruity, and a it of yeast.

T: Taste is about the same as nose; some spices including little bit of clove. Fruits are pretty strong apricot, apple, and a little bit of a banana taste. Mild amount of yeast and no alcohol present.

M&D: Mouthfeel is pretty weak for the style, thin but little carbonation. Drinkability is extremely high, I've never had a beer of this style that's more drinkable.

3.51/5  rDev -13.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a light honey with a ridiculously big head. Took several minutes to go down enough to enjoy it.

S - Very light aroma. Lots of caramel and a slight floralness to it

T - Mild flavor. Hints of caramel, lemon, and rose. Seems to alternate between bitter and sweet and has a strong yeastiness on the finish

M - Medium body. Quite smooth while bubbly in the mooth.

O - A nice amber that is somewhat unique. The floral aromas and flavor set it apart from the rest.
